The present study deals with the investigation of the effect of Seaweed
Liquid Fertilizer (SLF) of the red seaweed Gracilaria dura (Ag.) J.Ag.
on the growth, biochemical and pigment characteristics of Vigna
radiata (L.) R. Wilczek., in Hare island, Thoothukudi, Tamil Nadu,
India. The seaweed liquid fertilizer (SLF) obtained from Gracilaria
dura (Ag.) J.Ag was treated in different concentration such as 2.5, 5.0,
7.5 and 10.0% and tested on Vigna radiata (L.) R. Wilczek. Among
the different concentration of SLF investigated, plants that received
10% Seaweed Liquid Fertilizer showed maximum content of total
carbohydrates, total proteins, total lipids, total phenols, total
chlorophylls and total carotenoides compared to other concentrations. From the results
obtained, it was suggested that there are considerable gain to be made increasing yield and
stabilizing yield requirements for organic nutrient management appear promising.
